Thirteen schools participated in this year’s INNORITE creative writing competition
In September, the walls of Our Own English High School – Sharjah (Girls) resonated with students’ enthusiastic reflections on INNORITE, as thirteen schools participated in this year’s innovative creative writing competition, transforming thoughts into comics. Celebrating the Year of Tolerance, INNORITE 2019 revolved around this theme.
To facilitate the event, a workshop was conducted on innovative creative writing by Annemieka Woodbridge, Founder/ Managing Director of the Young Author Academy, Dubai, followed by a training session on creative writing apps. A story starter gave the students an ethical dilemma, prompting them to create a story by addressing the elements of tolerance, such as peaceful co-existence, happiness, stability and prosperity. The students’ innovation in creativity was clearly visible in the brilliant way they transformed their storyboard into comics.
The winner of this year’s INNORITE was Our Own English High School – Sharjah (Girls). However, being the host school, the first place was instead awarded to GEMS Our Own Indian School – Dubai. Second place was awarded to GEMS Our Own English High School – Dubai (Girls).
